Clubroot Disease of Canola - Western Canada Update (PDF 468 KB)

Clubroot is a serious disease threat

In parts of Western Canada clubroot is a serious disease threat, particularly in Alberta, where it can cause up to 80% yield loss in infected canola fields. 

The Pioneer Protector® clubroot resistance trait in high performing canola hybrids provides several benefits to growers:

 Multi-race clubroot resistance built right into the seed

  • High level of resistance to the most prevalent clubroot race – Race 3 along with resistance to races 2, 5, 6, and 8

Helps manage clubroot in your canola

  • Clubroot is a soil-borne disease so growing a canola hybrid with the Pioneer Protector® Clubroot resistant trait will not increase the risk of clubroot resistance on your field

Keeps land infection to a minimum

  • Planting Pioneer Protector® Clubroot resistance hybrids keeps clubroot infection from building up on your fields
  • Important to maintain a 1 in 4 year rotation in clubroot confirmed areas
The roots and stalk in this clubroot resistant hybrid (top) are healthy and unaffected compared to the clubroot susceptible hybrid (bottom) which exhibits the characteristic galls.
